Fr Benny turns barber for inmates of old age home even during lockdown
Rajakkad (Idukki): When barber shops were closed following the lockdown to prevent the spread of coronavirus, many people had started cutting hair and shaving by themselves at households.
But a barber shop in the Athurasramam old age home in Kuruvila City here is still helping the elderly people who were abandoned by their family.
Director of the Athurasramam Fr. Benny Ulahannan himself does hair cutting and shaving for the inmates of the old age home.
In order to maintain hygiene of the elderly people in the centre, Fr Benny turns a barber for them. The inmates also cooperate with him and sit obediently for hair cutting and shaving.
Presently, there are 49 inmates in the Athurasramam old age home and 26 of them are men. Elderly people, mentally challenged and those suffering from loss of memory and other ailments are staying sheltered in the centre.
